Hi, all. I posted a couple of these photos back in January. Someone asked me to do a FanPost, but I never got around to it. Until now.
The BBWAA New York Dinner was on January 25, 2014, in Manhattan. The Manager of the Year, Rookie of the Year, MVPs, Cy Young, and other awards were presented. (The previous year, Chipper Jones was honored with a lifetime achievement award.)
Hank Aaron was there.
One man, two MVPs: Miguel Cabrera picked up his second MVP in a row.
Sandy Koufax introduced NL Cy Young winner Clayton Kershaw.
Max Scherzer, AL Cy Young winner.
Joe Torre, Bobby Cox, and Tony LaRussa were honored for getting into the Hall of Fame.
There's a program of sorts, called The Scorebook. It has photos, illustrations, and articles about the people and teams being honored, and about baseball in general. And ads. Many, many ads. Sort of like the ads parents take out in their high schooler's yearbook. A friend of mine who is a long-time Braves fan really enjoyed them, so I've scanned few of the Braves-related ones.

A bunch of writers tip their caps to Bobby Cox. (Among them: former Reds beat writer Hal McCoy, and Braves beat writer David O'Brien.)
